Flashy, unraced TB currently going Novice, 1* potential!

16.1 hh 7 yo TB gelding. Never raced, no soundness issues, no vices. Extremely attractive horse. Has gotten some ribbons at recognized Novice this summer and has done a schooling Training HT.

Consistently coursing 3’3 with lead changes, jumps in VERY good form, has schooled some Prelim. Ready to go training with a capable rider. Super easy in the barn and very sweet, easy keeper and same at shows as he is at home.

Not hot and will take a joke to the fences, but is a sensitive ride so does require a confident rider because he look to his rider for confidence. Hacks out alone, super simple to frame up. Sadly for sale as owner doesn’t have time for two horses.
